5 Top Hospitals That Will Pay for Your Education

Many hospitals offer some form of tuition reimbursement or loan forgiveness, but these five hospitals do that, and more. From staff development classes to on-site degree programs, these hospitals virtually pay you to go to school. If you are lucky enough to land a job at one of these prestigious hospitals, you will find not only opportunities for educational advancement, but also concierge services, employee health clubs, and on-site child care.

    You did a great job and I am really thankful for gathering all that information in a guide for us. I have recently started my masters in nursing. I have done previous research to check up some general aspects of this field, but there are still a lot of things I should now at this moment. Thanks to your guide, I will be able to form an opinion about the field in nursing that fits me and brings the highest degree of professional satisfaction.

    I hail from Philippines, a USRN of California and was not issued SSN. I was in US last March to look for a petitioner but to no avail. I am planning to have my post grad in any college near Anaheim to stay in US legally and soon after, if God willing, be given the chance to work. Thanks for giving me the list of universities and colleges willing to finance my education and training. I hope I will be qualified....

    Northwest Community Hospital has got to be my all time favorite. I know at least 3 people who have collaborated with them with very good results so far. I encourage anyone to give them a try. Andrew - cfds consultant.

    in a 2 yr college as a liberal arts student, and I am considering nursing, my thing is I do not want to take out loans, so I though thought of taking the cna program which i will pay out of pocket and work at either a hospital or nursing home. recently I was notified by a friend that some nursing homes or schools are wiling for you to go back to school to obtain your BSA... I live in NY and she lives in Delaware, not sure of any in NY, do anyone of you know any place in nY? thanks for all help

    There are a lot more than five hospitals that pay for schooling! UPMC has a very generous tuition plan, as a matter of fact.

    I am currently a CNA in Oncology at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle. They are a WONDERFUL hospital to work for. I start an associates degree nursing program in January. VM will pay up to $1000 per quarter for tuition reimbursement. The contract states that you must work at least 20 hours a week while for the duration of the program, maintain a GPA of somewhere between 2.8 and 3.2 (sorry I can't remember of the top of my head) and agree to work at the hospital for one year after graduation. The only catch is you have to pay tuition up front, but they reimburse you at the end of each quarter if you qualify. And, as far as I know, you are eligible for this benefit at your date of hire. My manager has been extremely supportive and flexible with my schedule. Another benefit is that the hospital will provide all of the vaccines and CPR training required by the nursing program at no expense to you. This junk adds up quick and will save you lots of moulah!

    If you need help financing your education otherwise, there are always Stafford Loans, scholarships, and grants. It sucks taking out loans, but you don't have to worry about paying them back until you are done with school and have a killer salary as an RN!

    In response to some questions below, I would NOT recommend working in the US without a license. Most state governments offer CNA courses for free or reimburse you after you get a job at a long term care facility. These courses are usually only a month long or less. For people with RN licenses from other countries, bite the bullet and take the NCLEX in the US. Working without a license is dangerous and impractical. You may be able to find employment privately without a license, but job security, malpractice insurance, benefits, and competitive wages are much more likely with a valid license.

    I am an LPN/LVN, who graduated in 1991- the school was located in a level one trauma, teaching hospital and was so lucky to get my first position within this hospital in the ED, my next position was in Oncology , then a office maneger for a Cardiologist, then returned to the same hospital in texas by the way, and help open their new step down unit, surgical, also worked in the step down unit , medical. also the SICU, for my training. all of these positions were word of my mouth from previous employers and worked for many years without having to search for jobs.
    I must have made a good name for myself, now I find myself in Wisconsin, where LPN's are only used in Nursing homes and clinics.
    I feel like I am wasting all my education and experience, I have been ACLS certified, am IV certified, certified also for Cardiac Monitoring.
    I would love to go on and get my AA in Nursing, but single as I am, need an employer who will sponcer me, have many great recommendations from physican's etc.
    Are there any Hospitals with programs to work there and help pay for school if I sign a contract to work for them for any number or years???
    Able to relocate....
    If there are any generous donors out there I am also willing to pay back a personal loan at the going rate, so I could study full time
    Thanks. I can be reached at maryellenowen2@yahoo.com
